Comedian Rob Schneider came out in defense of female athletes, saying on Twitter that all the controversy would stop if women refused to play against men who identify as women.
"This s*** has to stop… If the parents, coaches and ‘women’ athletes ALL REFUSE TO PLAY against these MEN… It ALL STOPS!" Schneider posted to his 1.5 million followers.
The actor's statements were attached to a clip of a high school volleyball player from North Carolina. In the video a young girl named Payton McNabb had a volleyball spiked in her face by a male player who identifies as a girl, causing significant injuries.
McNabb suffered a concussion, impaired vision, and partial paralysis, according to a report by The Daily Wire.
The video was posted by NCAA athlete and women's sports activist Riley Gaines, who said "Watch the clip of Payton McNabb getting spiked in the face by a male competing with the women. Then watch her testimony she gave today for the first time publicly. I was honored to stand alongside her in NC to continue the fight to protect women's sports."
In her testimony, McNabb explained that many of her injuries still persist and that she has special accommodations in school because of the incident.
"Injuries I still suffer from today include impaired vision, partial paralysis on my right side, constant headaches, as well as anxiety and depression,” the athlete said.
“My ability to learn, retain, comprehend has also been impaired, and I require accommodations at school for testing because of this," she explained.
Schneider, now 59 years old, has been rather outspoken in recent years about his political and societal views. In November 2022, the actor urged those who are moving out of California not to vote the same way in their new states.
"Dear Former California Residents," Schneider decried. "YOU moved out of California for a reason; crime, out of control homelessness, taxes, your children being indoctrinated in schools, individual rights being trampled etc! So please don’t vote the same way to replicate the same s*** you just left!" he added.
The former Californian explained that he didn't want Democrats trying to run his life, stating that "there’s not one aspect of your life that they don’t want to interfere with."
